|My influences come mainly from Creation, using only natural bird & landscape themes, especially “light & flight” to accent our in-built spiritual dimension. The main aim of my work is to point to this, & the inevitable conclusion that such incredible multi-dimensional design & beauty requires a designer - & our responsibility to that Creation & Creator.|
